When I last spoke with Patrick at colonial he told me only one length, and based on sales of the 2018 model year airstream will decide to expand to other floor plans... or not.

We saw it at the Pomona RV show in October and my wife fell head over heals over it. Now selling our new 5th wheel for the globetrotter in Barcelona blue. It should be in next week, can't wait. Have been scouring the internet for info and pictures. We are both new to this Rv thing enjoy it immensely. Going to tow it with Porsche Cayenne for short trips in calif. and gmc Denali 2500 HD duramax for long hauls.

Yes, somewhat, but it was my understanding that the European ASs were the narrow body models. Pat

Watching the walk through video from Colonial, three new features stand out: new 3 way Dometic fridge now runs on battery power to keep cool when traveling, power stabilizers, and cool new stylish stove. I also like the adjustable base for the dinette. Nice new features I wish I had on the 2017.

Got to say, this is one of the nicest Airstream interiors I've seen. It's very similar to the gray kitchen cabinets we have in our home.

Like others here, hoping that the line moves to a 25' twin floorpan sooner than later. A standard Truma water heater would be nice too.

(Yes, the former vintage owner in me is bothered with the use of this name for a fairly large trailer, and the having-British-inlaws part of me is bemused by the "European" billing and the fact that AS still won't sell one of their longer narrow-body trailers here.)

The lounge area of the the back 15' or so of a 25FB and 27FB are identical for furniture and fittings. I see this new interior as a marriage of the Serenity cabinets and Signature cabinetry.

The price is certainly astounding. Our 2014 31' Classic listed for $96,147 and we added the second A/C unit and 50 amp service for $2,129 for a total list of $98,276. So a few options like the second A/C for use in the Southwest will push this new model price close to or over $120,000.

Well these inflated new prices keeps the value of our older model from depreciating very much.

Me too. I like the white counters, and dark wood. Waiting to see the second fabric choice.

$120k is cheap. Earthroamer just released a $1.5MM unit on a Ford F-750 platform. What does this remind you of?

Time to buy gold.

They had million dollar motor homes in the 60s..... Bluebird bus made custom rigs that were in the $500K class as a friend of my father had one they used to go to Alaska several times.

I do think the $150K price range of the new Classics is exorbitant

Hi

The idea that Airstream is at the top end and you can't spend more has always made me laugh a bit. That was not true in the 60's (when I first started noticing this stuff). It certainly has not been true since then. They do sell for more than some brands do. They sell for less than others.

None of that speaks to "are they worth it?". Something is worth what people are willing to pay. Right now AS has a pretty crazy backlog. In that sense, they are worth it. My guess is that at 3 or 4 a year the Earthroamer people have a "couple of years" backlog as well.

Before you decide that nobody ever buys one of those expedition vehicles ... (ignoring AS only campgrounds) I've had roughly as many of them parked in with me as I have Airstreams ....

Bob

Did your Globetrotter arrive as per schedule? If so, could you post some pictures?

Thanks!

We cancelled the deal with the "show shister" and received a substantialy better price from Toscano in Los Baņos. Now waiting for delivery around Dec. 12. Tons of pictures from dealers on RVTrader, our color is Barcelona Blue.
